Fabregas: ‘Fully Committed’ To Chelsea

New-Cesc-FabregasChelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas explicitly denied that head coach Antonio Conte has told him he does not have a future at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas started the midweek EFL Cup win over Bristol Rovers but has only made one Premier League appearance this season, as a substitute at Watford last weekend.

He was an unused substitute during Saturday’s 3-0 win over Burnley and media reports on Sunday morning stated that he had been told by Conte that he would be allowed to leave the club.

However, Fabregas issued a series of tweets on Sunday night in which he made it clear that he will be remaining with the Blues.

“Contrary to what has been written, the manager and I have a good relationship and he has NEVER told me that I can leave,” wrote Fabregas.

“He said that he counts on me, as I count on him. I will continue to fight for this club until the very end and when called upon I will always give my best.

“I am fully committed to Chelsea and my only goal is to help them win football matches.”

The challenge for Fabregas is that he does not fit into Antonio Conte’s system. He is not strong enough defensively to play as part of a two-man holding midfield, while closer to goal Chelsea have more creative players like Hazard and Oscar.

Do you think Cesc will still be a Chelsea player when the transfer window closes?

    Fabregas did a mistake thinking in him as a holding midfielder under Mourinhos approval, with Terry as defender you need to be babysitting any move he does. So Fabregas was doomed.
    Fabregas strength comes as number 10, but has to have more dynamic as Oscar does. But if Fabregas commit himself not to the lazy role as he performed before he will be ok as number 10, on top of Matic and Kante. Or wait until Conte realize the media machine around Terry career or Terry be in evidence and get the boot. Who is more responsible for disastrous defending Terry or Fabregas? Fabregas make the mistake to mix with Terry in the deffending role.
